You’re Eight Times More Likely to be Killed by a Police Officer than a Terrorist

Cops are trained to escalate.  In any other profession which deals with an unknown entity such as health care--as a first responder, or ED worker, you are trained, ingrained, and your behavior enforced by peers, to not escalate.  Cops are conditioned by culture to use the excuse that their lives are at risk in every scenario which then justifies dealing with the fallout later rather than an analytical approach at the "scene".  Then they get incredibly defensive, clannish and obstructive at any attempt to review their behavior.  They see the public in general as always suspicious.  This is reinforced through their training, their leadership and lack of real civilian review of their more atrocious acts.  The militarization of the police force makes it really dangerous for civilians to ever rely on them for assistance.  We can't trust them to properly interpret anything we do. It's a bad situation for cops and everybody else. It's probably always been like this to some extent, but the tools to harm us and the institutional support of them doing so has been so escalated these days.

If the provocative statistic cited above got your attention, that’s good. If it adds a little more to your efforts at producing a safe, stable, peaceful, and free society, all the better.

This is very very strange - almost sureal - does the writer not know that the illness and the cure are presented by the same folks - i.e.: the government is responsible both for the terrorism and the proferred solutions - pretending not to know the fact is a waste of your time - your have written an article that is nothing more than a (Space Filler) - Unless you deal with fact - nothing that you have written or may write in the future - has any merrit, but never mind - keep your head in the sand - I am sure their a place for all of us.

I'm pretty sure that the epic corruption of the US judicial system play's a key role. Cops know if they kill someone they'll have an unlimited defence fund, a paid vacation, and probably a medal for "bravery". Camera's in cell phones are playing a big part in exposing the fraud that's been our legal system in the US. The courts and cops are a conflict of interest, and police aren't in the constitution, and SWAT is certainly unconstitutional. The problem is that we elect our worst criminals, and they seem to have different laws to follow than we do.
